Father's Day Album

With each passing year, Father's Day becomes more and more fun becuase my daughter is getting older and able to participate in gift giving. This year I've made a coaster mini album for my husband that I've only just started...I'm leaving most of the journaling to my daughter. Here is how this album started:

This is a coaster from an airport restaurant. We picked up two of these during our spring break vacation. I liked the vintage feel of the photo and the heavyweight coasters make great albums. I covered up the writing on the coaster using border stickers included in June's Scrapbooking Kit, Mayberry, and started adding from there using some of the fun embellishments included in the kit. The adhesive "pop" button and "one way" chipboard sign are a few of my favorites! The tag is also included in the kit - I simply stamped it with "no. 1" to create my album title.

Although this is a mini album (approximately 5 x 3.5 inches), I was still able to add some fun elements on each page. I used a combination of stickers and chipboard elements so everything wasn't flat and one dimensional. I actually like bits and pieces sticking out of my albums!

I can't wait to finish this up with my daughter. She enjoys looking at these old photos, and I know her Dad is a softie when it comes to photos of his girl.

Wishing all of you and yours a Happy Father's Day!
